Eliminate Kerberos Ticket Renewal Dialog Box

There is an applet called krb5-auth-dialog that by default is active on many Linux distributions. It is intended to assist you with renewing your Kerberos tickets before they expire. Because AD Bridge renews your tickets for you, the dialog box is superfluous and can be a nuisance.

To disable the dialog box:

  1. In the menu, click System > Preferences > More Preferences > Session.
  2. Click the Startup Programs tab and disable the krb5-auth-dialog program. This change prevents it from restarting next time you log on.
  3. Close the Sessions window and then run this command from the shell:

    pkill krb5-auth-dialog
